Elektrik Ram is brilliantly eclectic and is easily the most colourful chapter in the band’s already vivid discography."Distorted Sound Magazine

"Ruff Majik continuing to prove why they are in a league of their own and one of the brightest prospects of the South African rock scene." - Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

About Ruff Majik

The horned infant known as Ruff Majik emerged from the primordial ooze when the band moved from the historical town of Lydenburg in 2012 to the capital city of Pretoria, where they honed their craft for a few years before finally entering the studio to record for the first time.
Now, with several EP’s and two lauded albums under their belt, not to mention a megaton of local and international touring, they return with what might be their defining work in the shape of ‘Elektrik Ram’.
Ruff Majik is Johni Holiday (vocals & guitar), Cowboy Bez (guitar & vocals), Jimmy Glass (bass), and Steven Bosman (drums), four horsemen of the feedback apocalypse who know what they want to say and do it without apology.
